Apple Maps Stops Sending People Searching For "Abortion" To Adoption Centers

Apple’s reputation for creating products that are easy to use and understand is well deserved. However, the transformation of Siri’s lack of knowledge of abortion providers to Siri’s anti-choice suggestions is alarming, and contributes to the stigma surrounding abortion care in our country. Despite the commonness of abortion, as nearly one-in-three women will have an abortion by the age of 45, women are confronted on a daily basis with society’s shame-based messaging that having an abortion is morally wrong and unacceptable. Women continue to be bullied, shamed, and marginalized for seeking an abortion, which can lead to isolation and silence. It is in these times of isolation, when women are more likely to turn to your product to locate the health care they need, that Siri’s misdirection to adoption agencies and nurseries is all the more undermining, implying women do not know what is best for themselves.

What Media Companies Can Learn From Facebook's Incredible Mobile Turnaround

I don’t know where you got that story from. I never had a conversation with the engineering team, where we were behind on mobile and I said, “We need to do this to make money.” That’s not really how we operate. What happened was we realized mobile was growing faster than desktop and people were shifting their usage. It was the more important thing for people’s consumer experience.

Missing Facebook Pages: What to Do When Facebook Takes Your Page Away : Social Media Examiner

“Michael A. Stelzner” such a long post and all the way your panic story for days to overcome situation, but I am sorry I am still unable to find solution on this all except asuming that Facebook will cater those request from heave investors in their ads system and rest will lay down to rot until perish and vaporized. LoLz! our official page : “/PremierBPO”has been disappeared and no way to get it back. lodged an appeal, asked on help and submitted feedback as well with some reporting form….it looks like they have altered our page….its terrifying and its dangerous to rely on them as they can evaporate you in seconds …indeed all your efforts and work you have done with to build your brand.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Review - IGN

For the first two act of the movies, the zombie sequences and the Pride and Prejudice-inspired scenes work well separately, but they don't come together to feel like they've gelled as one film until the final act, when the conflict with the zombies becomes central to Elizabeth and Darcy's storyline. The Pride and Prejudice side of the movie brings the humor, and the zombie side brings the action. In this world, people don't become full zombies until they've eaten human brains, and because of that some infected are still, humorously, shells of their former civilized selves. The zombies are never scary, but there are some solid jump scares scattered throughout the movie. While the undead are always a presence in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Steers was wise to lean more into the Austen of it all instead of making this a zombie action movie on a Victorian backdrop.

Microsoft Beats On Strong Cloud Revenue With $25.7B Revenue, $0.78 EPS

Microsoft today reported earnings for its second financial quarter of 2016 (I know, that’s weird, but Microsoft’s financial year ends in June). The company reported non-GAAP revenue of $25.7 billion for the last quarter and $0.78 of adjusted per-share profit.

I watched someone commit suicide in VR and it freaked me out

This wasn't how it was supposed to go. I was standing on a junkyard hovercraft, pointing my revolver at the young lady floating on the adjacent skiff. She was my enemy, but I couldn't pull the trigger. Her hand hovered between us, waving back and forth in the universal sign for "stop." Her gun aimed away from me, its barrel touching her temple. I lowered my weapon. She pulled the trigger anyway. In the world of Hover Junkers , a virtual reality game where scavengers wage war over scrap metal and resources, I was a killer -- that's my role -- but nobody ever said anything about suicide.

Oracle's finally killing its terrible Java browser plugin

Oracle is taking the final step to rid the web of its terrible Java browser plugin. While the plugin started off life back in the '90s as an innocent way to bring app-like features to browsers, in recent years it has been a headache to users and IT admins struggling to fight against its mountain of security flaws and malware issues. Microsoft and Google have both killed off support for Java applets in Edge and Chrome, leaving Internet Explorer and Safari as the only alternatives for people who really need Java applications in their browser.

Flipkart and Udacity want a world without job interviews

But in technology-focused industries there is often a dearth of talent, and this is the gap that Flipkart is looking to plug with Udacity. Rather than waiting for experienced developers or those who have honed their interview techniques, they’re basing their hiring decisions purely on the potential demonstrated in a graduate’s coursework. It’s probably safe to say there will be some form of caveat in the contract that makes it easy for an employer to ditch a new hire if things don’t work out, but this streamlined process means they get first dibs on someone who could prove a rising star of the coding world.

Model 3 surprise: Tesla is preparing to announce 2 vehicles in March

Ohh, come on! It sounds like the Apple fanboys stupidity. (Writing this on an iPad.) The BMW started to develop the i3 in 2008, years earlier than Model S was released in 2012 and it’s also based on a skateboard platform. Now what? Is it coping Tesla backwards in time? If Tesla will ever user carbon fiber for body components then will you say it’s coping BMW as well? (Because we all know a couple of years ago it tried to put its hand on BMW’s CFRP technology.) If you are really EV enthusiasts then you should be happy because the EV world developing the best way it can. But if you are just Tesla fanboys… then I understand the quoted sentence.

Against “Don’t Read the Comments”

And worse, we denigrate a form that used to be, and sometimes still is, a powerful way of making meaningful connections with the world. I met most of my closest friends in the comments on my blog, or by commenting on theirs. Most of the people who came to my wedding were people who became friends by reading the comments. Whether it’s been some of the most talented people I’ve had the chance to collaborate with, or some of the most inspiring creators who I never imagined getting to connect with, being a person who read the comments opened countless doors for me back when we used to assume reading the comments should be a good thing.

Google's VirusTotal can tell if your firmware is infected

"Since the BIOS boots a computer and helps load the operating system, by infecting it attackers can deploy malware that survives reboots, system wiping and reinstallations, and since antiviruses are not scanning this layer, the compromise can fly under the radar," Santos writes. "As of today VirusTotal is characterizing in detail firmware images, legit or malicious."

SourceForge and Slashdot Have Been Sold | FOSS Force

All this goodwill towards the user community might be coming at a cost, however. I’ve heard reports from credible sources of layoffs at Slashdot, with many longtime employees being shown the door, with their jobs either eliminated or handed over to less costly and relatively inexperienced staff. Goodwill or no, this can’t have a positive effect on the site’s users’ experience. We can expect that the same cost cutting is probably happening at SourceForge, which is already struggling.

Insurify raises $2 million, launches text-based virtual auto insurance agent

Starting the process of getting quotes is as simple as texting Evia a photo of your license plate. If you don’t have a license plate, you can just tell Evia that you’re looking for insurance for a specific car make and model. Evia will ask some questions to verify your identity and will ask whether you own or lease the car. Then Evia can start sending quotes for plans that would be a good fit. You can ask questions about what certain terms mean, and Evia will answer based on her own knowledge. If she doesn’t know the answer, a human will respond on her behalf. Once you find the insurance you want, you jump on a call with a person to complete the deal.

Nokia president talks Ozo and the company's big VR bet

With Ozo, its $60,000 production-ready VR camera, Nokia's poised to become a big player in that burgeoning market. Already, the company's differentiated itself within the relatively small field by offering a solution to a problem that's plagued creators of VR content: You can watch live playback using a head-mounted display like the Oculus Rift. "Ozo brings you the ability to do a live monitoring of live action on set," says Haidamus of the feature he believes filmmakers most want. Previously, directors using other VR recording solutions would have to wait until the post-production process to view the finished, "stitched" end product.

Still, the company saw strong cloud growth, with Azure revenue up by 140 percent. Its overall Intelligent Cloud division revenue was up five percent.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: "Pilot, Part 2" Review - IGN

That spectacle was all well and good, but as with The Flash and Arrow, it's the character dynamics that are the real meat of the show. The first episode hit on the crucial element that's going to distinguish Legends of Tomorrow from its sister series. This isn't a team of heroes. It's a group of miscreants and losers that are doomed to be forgotten after they die. Every character on the show is lonely and emotionally damaged in some way. This episode was great about exploiting that element and playing these characters against one another in both comedic and dramatic ways. Arthur Darvill's Rip Hunter played a very small role compared to the premiere, but the rest of the group had plenty of time to shine.

Amazon Prime memberships grew by over 50 percent in 2015

Amazon just announced its financial results for Q4 of 2015, and one of the big trends the company highlighted was the continuing strength of Amazon Prime, a service that has its roots in free two-day shipping but is now becoming a catch all for host of free media the company gives to subscribers.

Growth in the US came in at 47 percent, which means things picked up every faster internationally.
